president obama's pattern of untold trillions of dollars in wasteful government spending. over the past four years president obama has added so much to our national debt that he has already had to increase our nation's debt limit four separate times. this includes the two largest increases in our history. no other president of the united states has needed an increase of over $1 trillion. president obama has asked for that much twice. while he once promised to cut the deficit in half by now, he's done just the opposite. he'hehe's added as much debt in four years as all the previous presidents racked up in our country's first 225 years. president obama has maxed out the national credit card and now he wants a new one. in return, the president isn't willing to offer commitments that he'll try to be more responsible with that next credit card. in fact, under his latest budget, the president wanted to add another $6.4 trillion to our debt over the next five years. that's the wrong direction for our federal budget and for the nation's future. the president can take this opportunity to reassure har
. they tried in 2011 to use the debt limit as a leverage point of force obama to swallow big spending cuts. it worked, but it was terribly damaging, but the the nation's economy and to their political capital. congressional plummeted to something like 9 percent. and they recognize that this was a bad idea. gambling with the faith and credit of the united states it turns out as a pretty bad idea. we were downgraded for the first time in the nation's history. they did not want to do that again. like us said, they did not want to vote for a bigger national debt either. that does not fit with their philosophy, so they came up with this strategy of saying, okay, we will suspend it. in the meantime, we really want the senate to pass a budget for 2014, and the law also says that if either chamber fails to adopt the budget by april 15th, their paychecks will be docked. so the whole idea of this thing is to a postpone this sort of economy prattling default situation until they can prosecute this continuing fight over taxes to a point where the budget is satisfied in the debt limit can be raised aga
with the fiscal cliff deal. they're hoping to extract spending cuts from president obama. if not that fight, then in the next debt ceiling fight the next debt ceiling fight. the demand nor spending cuts isn't going to go anywhere. >> bill: barney frank, he would be fired up, ready to go. he knows she is issues. he knows the fiscal issues better than anybody else. >> deval patrick said he would be happy to have him. he didn't endorse it per se but he expressed sort of opens to the idea. >> wouldn't be a big learning curve for barney. >> bill: no, not at all. i think it would be very tough for governor patrick not to appoint him. i mean who else could step in and have all of the information and all of the experience you need to really fight for the people. >> i was going to say -- >> bill: now, of course, so is it is sort of a relief the fiscal issues are out of the way and we can talk about something else like maybe immigration reform. very unusual to see these days eight senators, four from each party, agree on anything, correct? >> it is. >> bill: you cover the congress. you're there. >> i
to speak about taxes, debt and spending. it's time for president obama to show leadership, real leadership, on the biggest threat that america faces to our future prosperity. as my good friend, the republican leader, has said, if we don't get a handle on spending and debt, not much else matters. it has now been 1,371 days, almost four years, since democrats who control the united states senate have brought a budget to the floor and had a vote on and passed the budget. over that time our national debt has grown by more than $5.2 trillion. our credit rating has been downgraded because of fears that we may not be able to pay our debt back when it is ultimately due. and we have experienced the highest -- excuse me -- the longest period of high unemployment since the great depression. since the end of the official recession in 2009, americans' household median income has fallen by roughly $2,500, while the cost of employer-provided family health insurance has increased by more than $2,300, roughly a comparable amount. not only has income fallen by $2,500; costs have gone up thanks to obamacare
spending, it's also a thinly veiled bluff." is it? >> yeah, you might remember hearing in the election that president obama was haollowing out the military, they were going to prevent the hundreds of millions of cuts that president obama was going to put in. these were not new cuts we were talking about. this is all about the sequester, which is a policy that paul ryan voted for as part of the budget control act. republicans from paul ryan to mitt romney all the way on down spent most of the election in 2012 arguing that the sequester would be a complete disaster, because of what it would do to the military. now they're saying, after they lost the election and after the retreat, that absolutely, they don't mind the sequester at all, it's no big deal, they're happy to let it happen if democrats don't move. in that way, it's become a somewhat transparent bluff, which doesn't mean the bluff won't be called and we won't have the sequester. one thing i should say about the sequester, it's bad policy. >> what do you think is going to happen? >> i don't think it will happen for very long. i t
of it is spending on those of the highest levels spend a smaller percentage of their income to live and have the advantage of a tax system created for this advantage. during the debates with romney and obama, he mentioned that they were going to be just fine because obama was the champion of the koran the middle class and romney is the champion of the upper class. those investors are going to save the country. the point made by obama is that they were going to be just fine. i guess, where the way the tax structure have set up, they can get down to 10% because they can get tax is done because of corporations and the whole ball of wax. the other taxes considered by patrick included a gas tax and a toll increase on the pike. insurance pay the tolls and pay the gap. the rich people and the higher- income people will not be paying this tax at the same percentage. host: let's take a look at some of the details you hinted that. the associated press says he wants to hide to the income-tax from 5.25% up to 6.25% while eliminating itemize deductions. he is calling for reducing the sales tax from 6.25%
-building here at home, something that not just candidate obama, but also candidate romney, agreed about. we are looking at unprecedented cuts in spending on national security. we are looking at the prospect of drawing down from afghanistan. we are looking at a lot of changes. not just here in the united states, but in the world. one of the questions i know that we have is whether we are ready for the exchanges. i suspect that most of us believe we are not. tom, make -- maybe you could start as out and talk about the sequestration that paul ryan told us this weekend is going to happen. >> it is a prediction that at this point seems like a certainty, but i would argue it has been a near certainty once beat sequestration provision was written into the budget control act. i will talk a bit about sequestration per se, but i would regard it as a symptom and not the disease itself. the disease itself is erosion to the point of vanishing, almost, of the bipartisan political consensus for military string, for peace through strength, as people used to say. that is really something that over the cours
even the elements to it. >> well, tax reform, the question is the tax tape, do you thank you obama is shifting the debate now, that there is going to be far more taken in greater taxes for the wealthy and far less in spending cuts because that is the cret rick? >> difficult to predict. here is where we are right now. in terms of what has been enacted in 2011 and 2012, we are more than half way, hand this is conservative, i think, more than halfway to the so-called $4 trillion level. of that -- of that effort in 2011 and 2012, what has already been inenacted in terms of savings, it's a -- disproportionately weighed on spending cuts, about 72-28. we need more spending cuts, without a doubt we need that i think we have got to try to make sure we get the balance right r >> just ask you one more question, sir, do you think there is a risk that president obama wastes his political capital in the view of most americans? i mean, the rest of the world is here issing, climate change and carpet emissions in the inaugural speech but not what most americans seem most to care about. it's usually
and the confirmation -- i spent 29 years. it's humbly to hear before you in this new role as president obama's nominee for secretary of state, but my approach to this role, if confirmed, is also deeply informed by the 28-plus years that i have been privileged to spend in the senate. that perspective will remain with me, if confirmed, as secretary. and i'm already excited by the many ways that we can work together and in which we must work together. in order to advance america's security interests in a complicated and ever more dangerous world. i would add that i'm particularly aware that in many ways the greatest challenge to america's foreign policy will be in your hands, not mine, because while it's often said that we can't be strong at home if we're not strong in the world, if these days of fiscal crisis and as a recovering member of the supercommittee, i am especially cognizant of the fact that we can't be strong in the world unless we're strong at home. and the first priority of business, which will affect my credibility as a diplomat and our credibility as a nation, as we work to help other coun
to represent american national security and keep the peace. and i worry that president obama has picked senator hagel because really the defense department is the only part of the government that he seems to be willing to cut. he's not really interested in reining in spending in almost any other area except national security. he said the sequester, which is the $1.2 trillion in cuts that are scheduled to go in effect, which disproportion athlete affect defense spending, the president said during the campaign, ain't going to happen of the well, it's going to happen. it's going to happen here in about six weeks. >> steve: before you go, something that looks like will happen is it looks like it's bipartisan plan to reform immigration. what do you think? >> i hope so. we'll hear from the president this week, but it really requires presidential leadership, like so many of these issues, because it's easy for people to sort of get off in their corner and argue their particular agenda. but it's hard to come together on big complex -- >> steve: so it's up to the president? >> it's up to all of us, but t
